Welcome and Buongiorno! NEODESMO is the official Ducati Owners Club in Northeast Ohio, serving Akron, Canton, Cleveland, and the surrounding areas. Our partner dealership is Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph in Akron. Membership in NEODESMO is $10 a year and the most you have to own is a passion for everything Ducati! Our 2018 events are mostly on the calendar, check it out! We meet on the second Saturday of the month for Ducs & Dogs at Northern Ohio Ducati and on the fourth Sunday of the month for Ducs @ the 'Bucks at the Starbucks in Hudson.

We're sorry to report that one of our active Members, Joe Fiocca, was hit by a car while riding his Ducati last Wednesday.  He is in critical condition in ICU currently.  You can read more about the accident and his condition by visiting http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/joefiocca

We will have a card for Joe available to sign at our Club Mangia this Wednesday (December 10th).  Afterwards, we'll leave it at Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph where you can stop in and sign it.

We would like to raise funds to give to his family - we're sure even the smallest amount could help them with new hospital bills and anything else they may need. If you'd like to donate via PayPal, we'll collect the funds and include a check for all donations with his card.  Please click the link below and you can send any amount.  We'll update this post with the amount raised.

So far $10 has been donated.

Thank you all for your generosity.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Joe and his family.

Dave and Beth Rowles

Thank you for a great 2014!


NEODESMO Ducati Owners Club Members, we had a blast with you in 2014.  We saw several of you every month at Club Mangia, Ducs at the 'Bucks, and our new westside event, Desmo Dolce.  Members organized several fun rides and discovered more of Ohio's beautiful roads.

Our 2014 Ducs at the 'Bucks and Desmo Dolce season has come to a close, but we still have Club Mangia the second Wednesday of each month.  We're in the process of planning our events for 2015 and hope you'll all fill out the Member Feedback Survey that we sent to your email.

We are also working on designing new Club Gear!  We're excited about having something new to offer in 2015.

Most of you have picked up your Ducati Welcome Kits.  Please remember to make arrangements to pick it up, pick it up at one of our events, or pay for us to ship it to you.  We've just received another shipment and we're running out of storage space!

Welcome to our new Members too, we've loved meeting all of you!  Thanks to everyone for being patient with us this year as our personal obligations took up most of our time.  Thank you to our 2014 volunteers Raj and Charlie for all of your work!  If you are interested in volunteering for 2015, please let us know.

In case you missed the email, please note that tonight's Desmo Dolce has been cancelled due to the weather.

Join us at Mid-Ohio!

2013 Kits

No Comments »

Hi Members!

 Please make arrangements to collect your 2013 Membership Kits from Ducati soon.  We still have about 40 kits that we will disperse to other Members if they are not collected by April.  You can use the link on our site to pay for us to ship the kit to you, or pick it up at Club Mangia or any other Club event. 

Also, everyone that signed up in 2013 is in the system to receive the 2014 Welcome Kit from Ducati this year.  All of our new Members are added to the system as you sign up!   We'll send out an email once the 2014 kits arrive.

Thank you!
